COVID-19 Announcement

Major Projects Canberra is committed to progressing the delivery of ACT Government infrastructure projects and appropriately engaging with our community on those projects.

As a consequence of recent health advice, and so as to reduce risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic to members of our community and staff, Major Projects Canberra is postponing all in-person community engagement activities. This relates to all of our projects including Light Rail Stage 2A, SPIRE Project and the CIT-Woden project.

This is effective immediately and will continue until guidance from health authorities advises activities are able to be resumed. If you have any questions, please email

We thank you for your patience during this time.

What is being looked at:

Gungahlin to City Light Rail is now operating, and we're looking to expand the light rail network. We're looking to provide easy access to major educational institutions, retail and entertainment precincts, major events, and employment hubs through an integrated transport network.

  • We have been working through the recommendations of a Commonwealth Inquiry into the City to Woden project.
  • Our assessment by the Federal Department of Environment and Energy into the environmental and heritage impacts of the City to Woden project is in progress.
  • Canberra community and stakeholders will be engaged to help develop the draft Environmental Impact Statement for Commonwealth Avenue to Woden.
